Hexagon launches industrial computers for ‘toughest’ mine sites

Hexagon‘s Mining division has released new rugged industrial computers designed for the toughest mining environments with the launch of the HxGN MineDiscover Core LP and Core HP products.

The new computers, which come in low-precision and high-precision options, feature an extremely robust design tailor-made for the most challenging conditions, it says. “They deliver exceptional performance, flawlessly capturing telemetry and production data and boosting site efficiency and productivity,” the company adds.

Both modules feature a powerful Intel-based computing platform that improves performance and enables better machine application integration, according to Hexagon. “The units deliver unsurpassed flexibility and scalabilty, future-proofing mining customers’ investment in the machine platform.”

The MineDiscover Core units come with a variety of integrated connectivity options. These include dual Wi-Fi modules, cell modem and UHF radio. Additionally, Core HP integrates a high-performance chassis sensor to improve machine tool accuracy.

Hexagon Mining Principal Product Manager, Joe Arico, said: “We are very proud to introduce the new Core LP and Core HP products to our MineDiscover portfolio. We have worked tirelessly to ensure this is the best mining machine computing platform in the market.”

The mining division has accumulated tens of thousands of field test hours with its MineDiscover hardware (Core and Display 9) and the results have been “outstanding”, Arico said, adding reliability and performance were “exceptional”.

Core LP and HP will become the standard offering for all machine applications, consolidating and simplifying all machine solutions offered by Hexagon‘s Mining division, the company said.
